Our oldest child, Doug, gave us a Cuisinart ice cream maker for our anniversary earlier this month. So far, this is my DH's favorite ice cream. Needs to get "firmer" in the freezer for a couple hr. or so...

Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Makes 1 1/2 qt.

1 can Carnation evaporated milk
Heavy cream
2-4 drops Lorann Bavarian Creme oil
2/3 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. Penzey's Saigon cinnamon
3 very ripe bananas (that were frozen)
generous half cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

Pour the evaporated milk into a 3 or 4 c. measuring cup. Pour in enough heavy cream to make 3 c. total.

Mash the bananas well, add to heavy cream with the sugar, oil and cinnamon. Whisk or use mixer to get smoother ice cream. Pour into Cuisinart while it is running. Let it go about 15 minutes or so, until it is getting thick. Add chocolate chips and blend a couple more minutes. Turn off machine, remove ice cream and place in a container with a tight lid and freeze.

Thinking of trying this with the caramel-milk chocolate chips one of these times...

Serves 4 amply, or 1 sneaky husband...
